(Photograph) - University College London student Jane Clark, who was immobilised after being struck by a vehicle while crossing the road, took advantage of a new web-based teaching aid to continue studying at home. The aid, developed by UCL lecturer Cathy Key and Eyecue Solutions, ensured that Ms Clark, 19, completed the genetics course in her anthropology degree on a laptop from her home in Ingatestone, Essex.
